Opening the staircase in a 1950's split level
December 26, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We have just purchased a split level house and the stairs to the lower level are currently behind a door and are next to the stairs that go to the upper level. Having the door gives the lower level a "basement" feel and we would like to open the staircase so it is more inviting. How can we do this? Do we have to have a support beam?
